My Year in Nonfiction: Take a look back at your year of nonfiction and reflect on the following questions – What was your favorite nonfiction read of the year? What nonfiction book have you recommended the most? What is one topic or type of nonfiction you haven’t read enough of yet? What are you hoping to get out of participating in Nonfiction November?
1. My favorite Non-Fiction of the year?
This is a hard question to answer, but I loved this one so much, and not just from an emotional standpoint. I learned all kinds of facts and interesting stories about both bands, which I didn't know before, so I'll have to go with.....
Beatles VS Stones!!
I couldn't sit and read this thru at one sitting--it wasn't a cuddle up on the couch and read kind of book. It was the kind that I had to share with anyone I could and say "listen to this..." or "did you know?"
Beatles vs Stones.
It's an on-going argument in my household.
The book was great/amazing! But the argument has not been settled yet.
(But everyone knows it's the Beatles, right?)
2. What nonfiction book have I recommended the most this year?
I think it has been a tie. I've loved recommending When Women Were Birds by Terry Tempest Williams.
(it's hauntingly moving)
And I've recommended just as often, The Oregon Trail (which I discovered from last year's NNF. Thanks JoAnn) by Rinker Buck.
A combination of history and adventure
(as said by my friend JoAnn - but truer words were never said)
3. What is one type of nonfiction I haven't read enough of yet?
Can I write exactly what I wrote last year?
Obviously I read more on the lighter side of non-fiction, but I would have to say---Books on Social Justice written by progressive Christians.
And that can be a tuff and really deep subject, so I tend to stay away and stick to easier nonfiction like memoirs and cookbooks. But I would like to read more of that type of nonfiction some day.
It was true last year and it's still true today.
4. What am I hoping to get out of participating in Nonfiction November?
A ton of new titles to put on my TBR List!
Last year, thru Nonfiction November I was introduced
to so many great titles (and new friends), my eyes
were opened and I saw the light!
(because I hadn't been that aware of how much nonfiction or what kind of nonfiction I had been reading before.)
I am soooo excited to see what what's coming up this year.
